Postgame Wrap-Up: Landeskog Leads Avs With Hat Trick In New Jersey

It was the third career hat trick for the Avalanche captain

by Callie Parmele @CallieParmele / ColoradoAvalanche.com

NEWARK, N.J.--Facing the New Jersey Devils, a stingy defensive team that had only allowed four goals entering Thursday, the Colorado Avalanche turned to its captain.

Gabriel Landeskog scored three goals and led the Avs to a 5-3 win over the Devils at Prudential Center. It was New Jersey's first loss of the season.

"When we were in a tough stretch and facing adversity, our captain steps up and leads the way," said defenseman Ian Cole. "That's why he's the captain, that's why he's our leader. Obviously, a lot of guys stepped up, but him especially."
